Welcome to the Davidson Creek Library Learning Commons
Hello! It’s so good to see everyone again!
I know things will look different this year in the library, but it will be an awesome year with access to great books!
For the Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 classes, I will be visiting your classrooms with a selection of library books. You will be able to choose one book to borrow each week.
For Grades 3 -6, you will be placing one library book on hold each week from our Destiny online catalogue (don’t worry, we’ll show you how) and I will deliver them to you.
For now you will take out one book each week. If you like to read more than one book each week, remember that you can also borrow print books or eBooks from the Strathcona County Library. You can also access eBooks through Funbrain Books.

Here are some fun websites that are tied to some of your favourite books and authors:
Research & Information
Instead of wading through thousands of Google search results, why not try the following online resources for research:
- The Canadian Encyclopedia
- CIA World Factbook
- Canadian Geographic Kids Atlas
- Merriam-Webster Word Central
- Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online
If you do use Goggle to search for information, it is a good idea to evaluate your search results. To do this, you can read the Five W's of Web Site Evaluation. Listed below is a summary of the website:
- WHO wrote the pages and what are their credentials?
- WHAT is the purpose of the site adn is this stated clearly?
- WHEN was the site created? When was it last updated?
- WHERE does the information come from?
- WHY is this page better than other sites?
